Comments on the Meineck and Woodruff translations of Sophocles:. A worthy addition to Hackett's growing series of translations of classical literature in accessible editions.
These eminently readable translations have real potential for teaching. Meineck's theatrical sensibility and knowledge are evident, yet the text never becomes too 'stagey' nor wanders too far from the Greek. Woodruff's rendering of the choruses especially impresses me by the way he manages to render the complex syntax and imagery of the original—often tangled and occasionally obscure in its allusiveness—into clear and genuinely poetic English.
